Super job - the pictures are really helpful. for other neophytes like me - the Torx for the bumper cover it self are T25, the fender liner ones including the 5th one are T20. I'll post more that i learn as I go.

Lithium1330 did just a phenomenal job on this. The pesky electrical connector for the bumper - push the two halves together, THEN push down on the tab and pull apart (Easier said than done). put parts in baggies and label them as you take them apart. It makes going back together easier. those funny shaped clips that Lithium shows looping the cord around to pull out . The slide back in just the way they came out, so make sure the hook on the end that you put cord around is facing the same way it came out. If you are a newbie like me - Lithium says he can do this job in 15 minutes. It took me a whole weekend to take apart and put back together.

Lessons learned: 1. put parts in baggies and label them as you take them apart. It makes going back together easier.

2. stop when tired. 3. it is easier to do this job when car is on jack stands with front wheels off the ground - I did it twice with car on ramps - which makes removing and putting the screws for the wheel liners and the wheel liners back in much more difficult. 4. If you are stuck like I was doing the job with the car up on ramps - remove (or at least loosen) the four torx screws holding the wheel liner in place with the car on the ground so you can turn steerng wheel to give better access. Once they are loose, you can do the rest of the way with your fingers, but hard to initally loosen.

In the spirit of saying thanks to Lithium, I hope these help those who follow.
